How long will it take you to complete the campaign mode for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare? Developer Sledgehammer Games isn't providing a specific hour figure just yet, but the company now says it should take you longer to finish than recent entries in the series.

A fan on Twitter asked Sledgehammer co-founder Glen Schofield how long (or short) the game's campaign would be. Schofield replied, "Coming in longer than the last few."

If he means the most recently released Call of Duty games, those would be Call of Duty: Ghosts (2013), Call of Duty: Black Ops II (2012), and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (2011).

Call of Duty games aren't known to be the longest of games in terms of how many hours you need to complete the campaign. Typical clear times are under 10 hours. This year's game has me particularly excited for its story, however, as actor Kevin Spacey is playing a major role and I think he has the potential to make this game memorable.

Of course, the campaign mode for Advanced Warfare is just one component of the game. There is also the standard multiplayer, and a four-player co-op mode called Exo Survival. Advanced Warfare launches November 4 for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC.
